We’re going to start something new. Each week we serve up some of the web’s hardest-hitting automotive media on the Revvolution.com social channels. As we continue to grow our network of professional and amateur automotive photographers, the level and quality of our content continues to rise. Thumbing through our contacts and submitted content, a few shots naturally jump out as being particularly distinctive. Whether it’s the subject matter, creative composition, photographic style, or simply pure automotive grandeur, there’s something that sets these apart from the rest. From the dozens of automotive photos that we serve to you every week, we start to nail down what we consider to be the best of the best. We present our Weekly Top 10 Automotive Photos.
Clarity. Exposure. Sharpness. Tone. Contrast. Subject. These are all qualities that define a great photograph. And they're exactly what we're looking for. For the first couple of weeks, we will provide a little insight into why exactly we chose these images so that everybody can gain a better understanding of what we and our community are looking for.
This is one of those images that simply elicits raw emotion. Let's be honest--what's cooler than a rat rod expelling six foot fireballs?

Exclusivity. That's exactly why we chose it. Because you're staring at (at least when the photo was taken) the first and only Pagani Huayra in the United States. Not to mention it's a perfectly sharp and high-key (which apparently we like).

This was chosen simply because it was one of the first legit shots of the McLaren P1 that we've seen in the wild and that didn't entail the markings of a PR press kit. Simply gorgeous car that we can't wait to see some more of.

This shot is raw. And the history behind the supercar is even more remarkable. Remember when the yellow Ferrari Enzo FXX Evolution went careening off the road into the Atlantic during the 2011 Targa Newfoundland? What was thought to be totaled was completely rebuilt by the masterminds at Edo Competition and subsequently dubbed the "Enzo ZXX". With a completely new interior, upgraded exhaust and a power increase to over 900hp, they did a fantastic job restoring it.

We love seemingly technical photos like this. Fantastic toning and composition that perfectly complements the build itself. This is a remarkable S13 180SX that we would love to see some more of! Be sure to check out his Facebook page for some more shots. Under the hood is where the goods are at.

The lighting is spot on and the color of the car pops from the already epic background. The long exposure gives the clouds and scene movement in a static shot, a great touch.

With nearly 500 Facebook Shares and 2,000 Likes, we couldn't help but put this in!
